I was hesitant in watching this episode as I'm not a fan of the Cartwrights being treated bad, especially Ben. However, it is a good episode. Plenty of background info about Adam and Ben's hopeful trek to the west. Uncle Gunner's character comes through to another episode, The Viking thing there. So it made some sense. I thought Lorne Greene did an exceptional job here. He always throws a great right cross.
Is that all you can think about at a time like this, cake???

This is my favorite of the 2 Inger stories. I love Hoss' birthday cake and Adam and Hoss getting back for some cake after Pa reminisces about Inger while waiting for them to get home.

This is a very good episode. Lorne did a great job in it. Hoss' birthday cake looked delicious. Young Adam is very cute. I do wonder why Ben got so angry when Adam was playing his mother's music box. Elizabeth had been dead for 5 years so it shouldn't have upset Ben so much.

This was a great episode, as it allowed us to see the early days of when Ben met Inger.

Inger was my favorite of all of Ben's wives. She had the best personality and was the prettiest. :yes

I think this was an important scene as it showed us just how stuck in his grief Ben was. Inger made Ben open his eyes and see what this was doing to him and Adam, allowing him to finally move on, and later fall in love with her.

Lorne was great in this ep and we get to know Inger, which was nice.

I was just watching this last night and was thinking how Inger was my favorite of all his wives. I really enjoyed that little Adam really liked her.

I remember watching this episode with my mom when I was a little girl. I was so captivated by the image of a 'little Adam'.

I was also devastated when Inger died. I guess I knew that she had died, but I was shocked to see exactly how. The image has always stuck with me. :sad

I watched this a couple of days ago on MeTv and started thinking about Inger and Adam. He kept telling his Dad ,”Pa, she’s a real nice lady!” Perhaps, Adam has trouble finding a suitable wife, because he is looking for someone like Inger.
